Well we’re not sure if it’s going to carry the name ‘Tiburon’, but Hyundai is working on a RWD coupe that it hopes will compete with other upper class coupes like the BMW 3-Series and Infiniti’s G37. It is expected to carry Hyundai’s new Tau V8 engine which is capable of producing 300 horsepower, so it might just give BMW and Infiniti a run for the money.
Hyundai has recently been very serious about targeting the luxury car market in the United States. The company has already confirmed a luxury sedan that will debut in 2008, and had a very successful launch of the Hyundai Genesis Concept at the 2007 New York Auto Show.
We just have one question concerning these images. Couldn’t Hyundai find more open space to test a 300 horsepower rear-wheel-drive coupe.
